Weekly Radar (September 6, 2022)
The 2022 NFL regular season is just around the corner, and it has caught the attention of the community, which is willing to predict if the Los Angeles Rams will win against the Buffalo Bills. The last time the Los Angeles Rams played a game in their home stadium, they left the field hoisting the Super Bowl trophy for the second time in franchise history. The two teams have met each other 13 times, with the Buffalo Bills winning eight games and the Los Angeles Rams winning five games. But people’s beliefs are challenging this odd, at the time of writing, and leaning slightly toward a Los Angeles Rams win (0.592 GLMR vs. 0.408 GLMR). Still, the position has shifted several times, making this an exciting market to follow and participate in. The Los Angeles Rams’ quest for a third championship starts on Thursday, September 8, at 8:20 ET.
2024 is still far ahead, but the US Presidential Elections never fade away from the world’s agenda. However, with all the turmoil of the 2020 elections, uncertainty rose in the nation on which party will win the 2024 presidential elections. Although Biden’s popularity is gaining some traction due to the latest bills approved, the Republican Party still takes the lead in several forecasts. Therefore, it will be interesting to see how the political scenario will evolve and how it may influence the already polarized public’s sentiment. As of now, things are pretty even in this market (0.504 MOVR toward the Democratic party), but uncertainty will always play its role until the final outcome. So chime in with your thoughts and be part of this quest.
On the science side, an exciting market is begging for the community’s take to predict if doctors will attempt organ xenotransplantation (organ transplant from an animal) on a live human patient in the European Union before January 1, 2024.
In January this year, the world witnessed the most significant advance in medical transplants. The first organs taken from genetically modified pigs were transplanted into humans, and the person who received the first pig heart managed to survive for two months. But, how far is it from using pigs for an unlimited supply of organs and thus solving their global shortage? The latest advances in gene editing techniques have generated genetically engineered animals to overcome organ rejection. However, xenotransplantation also raises multiple biological and ethical questions. How those issues can delay its research and trials in the European Union is the big question waiting for your wise prediction at Polkamarkets.

The Polkamarkets community is not keen on Pop Culture or celebrity gossip. But we couldn’t ignore the story that took the internet by storm last week concerning Leo Dicaprio’s most recent break-up with 25-year-old Camila Morrone, which reinforced the theory that the actor doesn’t date women older than 25. And yes, we all saw the memes and detailed charts proving this trend’s consistency. But, as we all know, trends are usually right until reality tells otherwise. May someone pop the question and see how the Polkamarkets community can predict if or when this pattern will be shattered.
